To the General Secretariat of the Government of Brazil and to the Chief Minister of the General Secretariat of the Presidency:
Dear Gilberto Carvalho, I hereby request the Brazilian government to take concrete and immediate actions in regards to the World Cup of 2014 and the 2016 Olympic Games.
I ask you the following:
- That the government STOPS forced evictions until they can be publicly discussed and properly negotiated
- That the government COMPENSATES the victims of violations and forced evictions
- That the government SAYS NO to the special courts of the World Cup
- That the government SAYS NO to the exclusion zones around the stadiums
- That the government DEMANDS FIFA to pay taxes and sets the example to future host countries

SPECIAL COURTS OF THE WORLD CUP: If Brazil agrees to them, people will be judged under special laws that apply to the World Cup only. An example is that under these conditions simple acts of protest could be judged as terrorism.

EXCLUSION ZONES: These consist of the stadiums plus a 2Km radius around them. In these zones FIFA controls the movement of people, the security apparatus, and monitors the use of brands that it considers to be property of FIFA (such as the name of the event and the mascot.) FIFA also protects the exclusive sale of its sponsors -- so Brazilian street vendors cannot get closer than 2Km from the stadiums.

EVICTIONS: In the lead up to the World Cup, negligence can be justified due to a "state of emergency". Therefore, many of the host countries' social and environmental laws are trampled on without great resistance. It is estimated that about 170,000 people will lose their homes because of the event.

TAXES: FIFA stands to make up to $5 billion in profits from the 2014 World Cup soccer tournament and yet, it receives a comprehensive tax exemption (no corporate tax, no income tax, no VAT, no excise duties, no local tax, nor any other taxes)
